Editor/Author Biographies
Murat Uysal is currently an associate professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo (Canada) where he has been since 2002. He received his BSc and MSc degrees in electronics and communication engineering from Istanbul Technical University (Istanbul, Turkey, 1995 and 1998, respectively) and his PhD degree in electrical engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas (2001). Dr. Uysal is an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications and IEEE Communications Letters. He served a guest co-editor for a special issue of the Journal on Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing on “MIMO Communications” (2004) and a special issue of IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications on “Optical Wireless Communications” (2010). Over the years, he has served on the technical program committee of more than 50 international conferences in the communications area. He recently co-chaired IEEE ICC'07 Communication Theory Symposium and chaired CCECE'08 Communications and Networking Symposium. Dr. Uysal is a Senior IEEE member. His general research interests are in the area of communications theory with particular emphasis on wireless applications. Specific areas include multi-input multi-output (MIMO) communications, space-time coding, diversity techniques and coding for fading channels, cooperative transmission, performance analysis over fading channels, channel estimation and equalization, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), and free-space optical communication.
